MSI B75A-G43 LGA 1155 Intel B75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good, attractive layout. Nice color scheme. This runs very nicely with all Intel HDGraphics 2500/4000 integrated CPUs. Reasonable overclocking options. Very stable BIOS, but make sure to do an update as soon as possible before installation of the O/S to ensure stability.

Cons: None worth mentioning.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to note that there is only one 6Gbps SATAIII port. Also, you will need a USB3 header cable to get from USB3 mobo to your front panel. I do recommend a full 8-pin connector from PS to the CPU for optimal power & performance.

XFX Radeon HD 6670 DirectX 11 HD-667X-ZWF4 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Nice packaging. Good instructions. Has a DVI to VGA adapter included. Also has a display port built-in. This is a really good adapter for multiple monitor setups. No significant power needs for this adapter and it does not require separate PCI-E power cable. Lifetime warranty.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: At some point I expect to try this adapter in a PCI-E 3.0 slot to check out its performance, but I was really surprised at how Windows Experience Index went from 3.2 to 5.9 on a Vista x64 older Gateway PC with a Core2 CPU and 6GB of RAM. The graphics really snap and have no perceptible lag on a 2-5ms response monitor. Make sure to reboot twice after installation to re-route video from the motherboard to the adapter if the motherboard does not include a force PCI-E graphics option.

Pros: Nice, fast burner.

Cons: The included software is Nero Essentials 7, which is barely usable for most end users over the long haul. Be prepared to buy a full version of Nero or similar product for $40-100 to fully appreciate this drive.

Other Thoughts: Needed firmware upgrade to read & write at fastest speeds. Pay attention to whether you need to strap this as cable select or master/slave based on your PC and type of cabling. Master/slave worked best for me on a Dell Dimension.
